Welcome to Our Practice

Dr. James Stanford and his team would like to welcome you to Stanford Dental!

We care for patients of all ages at our practice, and our exceptional dentistry and service make us THE family dental practice in Manchester, MO.

A Patient-Centered Practice

We sincerely value our patients and know that establishing trust between patient and dentist is an important part of dentistry. This is why we spend a great deal of time getting to know each of our patients.

New adult patients begin their relationship with our practice with a 90-minute appointment in which Manchester dentist Dr. Stanford takes the time to perform a full and comprehensive interview, which includes a thorough examination, x-rays, and photos of the teeth and gums. The reason we are so thorough during your first examination is so we can find all that is healthy, and help you keep it that way. It also allows us to inform you if any unhealthy situation is detected so we can restore you back to health as soon as possible with a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs.

State-of-the-Art Technology for a Worry-Free Experience

Patients will find Stanford Dental well-equipped with the latest dental technology. This allows us to provide a more comfortable and pleasant experience for our patients while ensuring they receive the highest quality care.

For example, color photos from our intraoral camera help make it easier for you to understand your treatment needs, while nitrous oxide (laughing gas) can help “take the edge off” for patients who feel anxious at that dentist. Dr. Stanford also uses air abrasion, which eliminates the need for dental anesthetics and numbing when restoring a cavity. Digital impressions increase comfort by eliminating the messy impressions used in the past.

A Spa-Like Atmosphere

We want to help you feel relaxed and at ease when you visit our office. We’ve equipped every treatment room with a television, blankets, music options, pillows, and massage chairs to help make your experience exceptional. We also finish most treatment procedures with a warm, lavender-scented towel for your comfort.

We hope that you feel comfortable, welcome, and well taken care of when you spend time at Stanford Dental.

Convenient Dentistry for Your Needs

We know that it can sometimes be hard to fit dental appointments into your hectic schedule. At Stanford Dental, you will find both morning and late evening appointments so we can fit into your schedule rather than you having to fit into ours.

Dr. Stanford has been caring for patients in Manchester for well over 33 years. His extensive knowledge and experience allow him to provide a level of dentistry and service not found at most practices. Our patients love the personalized attention and care they receive every time they visit, and we know you will, too.

Call us today to schedule your next dental appointment. We are looking forward to meeting you!
